Lock-down as ordered by President Cyril Ramaphosa

 

Dear Member,

LOCK-DOWN AS ORDERED BY PRESIDENT CYRIL RAMAPHOSA

On the 23rd of March 2020, President Cyril Ramaphosa ordered a 21-day lock-down of South Africa from midnight on Thursday the 26th of March, in order to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This lock-down impacts the entire South Africa, and extends to everything other than the most basic of necessities. This includes the closing of bars and pubs, clubs and public open spaces. WPCC will naturally abide by this instruction.

From 6pm on Thursday the 26th of March, the Club will lock down for 21 days, and will not be accessible to anyone, including members, guests, staff and the general public. All Club facilities will be locked down, including all buildings (the Sports Centre, the Bowls Clubhouse, the Tennis Clubhouse, the ETA building, the Gym and the Members’ Pavilion at Newlands), as well as all sporting facilities (the tennis courts, the bowls greens, the hockey astros, the outdoor cricket nets and the cricket fields). There will be no access to the property through the booms both from the Avenue de Mist entrance and the Laidlaw Lane entrance. Our security company, SOG, who will remain on site, have been asked to police these restrictions, and have been instructed to assist with removing anyone from our premises after 6pm on the 26th of March. We ask for our members co-operation, and not to put SOG in an invidious position. We ask you to respect and adhere to
these instructions from the President for the good of all.

This remains a very difficult time for our country, all our members, and the Club itself. We trust that this 21-day lockdown period will help to break the back of this pandemic, and the Club is committed to doing its bit to reach this goal. We can then hopefully look forward to a brighter future for all, and a return to some form of normality.

We shall keep you informed as and when we receive any updates or relaxation of these regulations. In the interim, stay safe.

Yours Sincerely

DUNCAN DE GROOT

Club Chairman
